Street Fighter 6 Announced by Capcom

Capcom will drop additional information in the Summer of 2022.


After nearly a week of teasing and hints, Capcom has officially confirmed Street Fighter 6. The tease from Capcom doesn’t show any gameplay footage but it looks noticeably more ‘photorealistic’ as compared to previous Street Fighter games.

Whether the art style from the teaser trailer is representative of the final product is anyone’s guess, but rest assured, the game is now one of the most highly-anticipated releases from Capcom. Along with the teaser, Capcom has also confirmed that more news on Street Fighter 6 will be available come Summer 2022.

There currently is no announced release window for the game but seeing as Capcom will be announcing additional information in the Summer of 2022, perhaps the game is slated for release towards the end of the year or even early 2023.
